PREPARE FOR A WATER EVENT LIKE NO OTHER

4 NOVEMBER 2018 IN AMSTERDAM

The Aquatech Innovation Forum will unbox and open up the key developments you need to know about the digitalisation of the global water market.

Forget endless, back-to-back powerpoint presentations draining the life out of audiences. Instead think engaging, insightful and even provoking content delivered where you, the audience, gets to shape the agenda.

Forget attending events on the off-chance you may meet the right contacts. Instead think of a free-flowing agenda where speakers and the audience engage, interact and even trade places.

DISCOVER THAT DIGITAL IS DO-ABLE

The Forum will prove that digitalisation is more than just a trend or a buzzword. Some of the world’s most progressive companies will share practical knowledge and experience of adopting and succeeding with smart and digital water solutions. Learn with the future in mind watch keynote speakers shine a light into the darkness and at the end of the day, have fun while learning, networking and sharing knowledge.

MEET THE MASTERS OF WATER

Do you have what it takes to be a Master of Water? Find out and meet some of the global water leaders who have spent their careers progressing the industry with their proactive adoption of new ideas, technologies and ways of thinking. To make sure you will get what you want out of the Forum, you will help set the content with the free flowing agenda format.

Focus on discussions

Discussions will focus on innovation and practical solutions to challenges that exist; not unnecessary rhetoric and hyperbole.

Highly interactive

The high-level Forum will be fully integrated with the Aquatech Innovation Award in an interactive format: audience members will get to hear exclusive presentations and content on ‘not yet to market’ technologies.

Best in class speakers

Speakers will be individually selected to deliver targeted, actionable and practical content that address the application of innovative technologies.

We want to bring together real-life cases where new digital solutions are making a difference and create a platform where professionals can openly share experiences, network and overall consume engaging and entertaining content.
